Verse 1:
B                 Db7    
 I've given up on giving up slowly
E    
 I'm blending in so you won't even know me
Abm7              Gb                   Db7       B     E    
 Apart from this whole world that shares my fate
B              Db7                     
 This one last bullet you mention
E    
 Is this my one last shot at redemption
Abm7             Gb                        Db7      B    E    
 Coz I know to live you must give your life away


Pre-Chorus:
               Abm7              E             B       Gb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Abm7                E                   B                Gb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Abm7           E                      B             Gb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Db7                                           E    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Gb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
B Gb             E        Gb     
 I gotta get out of here
       B                Gb                E               Gb     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
B Gb              E            Gb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Abm7              Gb                    Db7            Gb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Verse 2:
B                 Db7    
 I've given up on doing this alone now
E    
 Cause I failed and I'm ready to be shown how
Abm7                 Gb                      Db7      B     E    
 You've told me the way, and I'm trying to get there
B                Db7    
 And this life sentence that I'm serving
E    
 I admit that I'm every bit deserving
Abm7                     Gb                      Db7       B      E    
 But the beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair


Pre-Chorus:
               Abm7              E             B       Gb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Abm7                E                   B                Gb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Abm7           E                      B             Gb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Db7                                           E    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Gb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:

B Gb              E         Gb     
 I gotta get out of here
         B                     Gb              E                     Gb    
 Coz I'm afraid that this complacency is something I can't shake, yeah
B Gb             E          Gb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Abm7              Gb                    E                  Gb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape 


Bridge:
Abm7             E    
 I am a hostage to my own humanity
B                             Db7    
 Self-detained and forced to live in this mess I've made
Abm7                         E    
 And all I'm asking is for you to do what you can with me
B                           Db7    
 But I can't ask you to give what you already gave

 

Pre-Chorus:
               Abm7              E             B       Gb    
 And I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
               Abm7                E                   B                Gb    
 And I've been locked inside that house all the while you hold the key
               Abm7           E                      B             Gb    
 And I've been dying to get out and that might be the death of me
            Db7                                           E    
 And even though there's no way of knowing where to go
                Gb       - chucka-chucka -
 I promise I'm going because...


Chorus:
B Gb             E        Gb     
 I gotta get out of here
       B                Gb                E               Gb     
 I'm stuck inside this rut that I fell into by mistake
B Gb              E            Gb    
 I gotta get out of here
         Abm7              Gb                    Db7            Gb                   
 And I'm begging you, I'm begging you, I'm begging you to be my escape


Outro - on piano -:
Gbm7 E D    - 1x for acoustic version, 2x for original version -

B           Db7            E    
 I fought you for so long, I should have let you win
 Abm7           Gb                     E     
 Oh how we regret those things we do
B         Db7            E                         Abm7    
 And all I was trying to do was save my own skin
    Gb                   E     
 Oh-o, but so were you

Outro:
   So    were    you 
    Gb        Abm7      B
